Libya PM to visit Europe to rally support
Libya’s UN-recognised prime minister begins a short visit to Europe as he seeks allies in his struggle against a rogue military commander.
Fayez al-Sarraj travels first to Italy, the former colonial power, before travelling on to Germany for talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel.
On Wednesday he’ll meet the French President Emmanuel Macron, whom he has criticised for supporting his rival, Gen Khalifa Haftar.
On the eve of his visit, AFP news agency said the UN was investigating the use of Chinese drones by Gen Haftar, in an apparent violation of an arms embargo on the warring parties.
